Secateur To Run In McKell Cup

Tuesday, 24th May 2016

Meanwhile, Goulburn trainer Danny Williams will use Saturday's Listed WJ McKell Cup (2400m) at Randwick as a possible stepping stone to the Melbourne Cup for UK import Secateur. “He was always going to the McKell Cup,” Williams told ANZ Bloodstock News. “We’re looking at the Stayers’ Cup at Randwick and the Queensland Cup in Brisbane. If he could win one or both of those, we’d seriously think about the Melbourne Cup but that might wait until next year.” Secateur (Danehill Dancer-Rose Cut, by Montjeu), who was stakes-placed in the England prior to arriving in Australia, has won 2 of his 15 starts to date. Secateur's second dam is French 1000 Guineas winner Rose Gypsy.
